Democracy Now: Watchdog Asks FCC to Revoke News Corp. Licenses in U.S.


A watchdog group has urged the Federal Communications Commission to revoke the U.S. broadcast licenses of media giant Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. after a scathing British parliamentary report found Murdoch was not fit to run a major media company. The report accused Murdoch and his son James of “willful blindness” about the massive phone-hacking scandal at the News of the World tabloid. In a letter Tuesday, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington called on the FCC to revoke News Corp.’s 27 Fox broadcast licenses based on character deficiencies unveiled in the report. News Corp. condemned the parliamentary findings in a statement as “unjustified and highly partisan.”
